Marvel moves new 'Avengers' release earlier, into April

Examining How Ant-Man, The Wasp, and Captain Marvel Fit Into The MCU

Avengers: Infinity War Runtime Revealed, Will Be Longest MCU Movie Ever – Rumor

At this point, there's little question that Avengers: Infinity War will be the biggest Marvel Cinematic Universe movie to date.

Marvel Studios asked fans if they were ready to see the film on May 4, to which Downey replied "Any chance I could see it earlier?" Originally scheduled for release on May 4, the film will now premiere on April 27.

Good news, Marvel fans: The next Avengers movie is hitting theaters a week early.

According to a new post on Reddit earlier today, the mission of Thanos to obtain the Infinity Stones will last 150 minutes on the silver screen.

The announcement was made on Twitter via a coy exchange between the social media accounts for Marvel Studios and Robert Downey Jr.

Speaking during the making of the movie previous year, Joe Russo said: "It's one of the more cinematic cities I've seen". Soon, you can be like the Mad Titan himself, thanks to this Infinity Gauntlet modeled after the omnipotent bejeweled glove that will cause Marvel superheroes all sorts of pain in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War.

To recall, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) called out Peter Parker to join the Avengers at the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming. The exchange also confirms that the pushed up release date is for the whole world, so if you were anxious it might be only in the United States, it isn't. Captain America (Chris Evans) is also seen in his old Cap suit from "Captain America: Civil War", as well as in his Nomad suit from "Avengers: Infinity War".

Well, in May it would have been going up against other box office heavyweights like Deadpool 2 on May 18 and Solo: A Star Wars Story on May 25. The new date was confirmed with the release of a new teaser poster for the highly anticipated ensemble film. Though we still technically have no idea what that will ultimately entail (or how big each narrative thread will eventually be), it seems to suggest that Infinity War may be one of Marvel's most dense and detail-oriented movies yet.
